(Contributed) – Elgin and Oxford OPP would like to make the public aware of a vehicle that is impersonating a police officer. On Wednesday around 11:50 pm a motorist on Talbot Line near Carson Road in Bayham was approached by a dark coloured Pontiac G5 style vehicle. This vehicle had red and blue lights activated within the front windshield. The vehicle then left westbound on Talbot Line. On Thursday around 10:30 pm, a motorist was stopped by a similar vehicle on Plank Line north of Mount Elgin. Again a similar interaction took place and the vehicle left. The suspect didn’t leave his vehicle in either incident
